brian gives an introduction to testing Perl software, whether you start with testing or want to add testing to exist projects. The talks include a live Perl testing demonstration (brian will provide the broken code so you don't have to), a survey of the test modules available for Perl, and raffle for a couple of free copies of "Perl Testing: A Developer's Notebook", the new testing book from O'Reilly Media by chromatic and Ian Langworth.
brian has been an instructor for Stonehenge since 1998 and a Perl user since he was a Physics graduate student. He founded the first Perl users group, the New York Perl Mongers, as well as the Perl advocacy non-profit Perl Mongers, Inc. which helped form over 200 Perl user groups across the globe. He maintains the perlfaq portions of the core Perl documentation, several modules on CPAN, and some stand-alone scripts. He's the publisher of The Perl Review, a magazine devoted to Perl, and a frequent speaker at conferences including The Perl Conference, Perl University, MarcusEvans BioInformatics '02, and YAPC. His writings on Perl appear in The Perl Journal, Dr. Dobbs, and The Perl Review.
